I'll take you off to moomin land

I've more or less been on a break from drawing and painting. I was only craving books and writing and felt uninspired and kind of dreary (blame it on the weather, hmpf.). Today the sun is peeking out again though and I woke up with the Moomins theme song in my head:
instant inspiration.

I think I got into this show when I was about.. 10? I didn't even care too much about the stories. I could watch it with the sound off. The thing I loved most about this show was the setting. The fields, forests, lakes, mountains. It slightly reminds me of another show called Alfred J Kwak which I've loved for as long as I can remember.

I've always wanted to go to Finland (or Scandinavia) and guess what!? There's a Moomin World Park there! Eek! I wanna go c: A real Moomin world just sounds too good to be true. I think I'd want to stay and live in their home forever.
I've never read the Moomins (comic)books. Maybe I should go on the hunt for some!

  1. Ahh! I have no idea what that is. It looks whimsical.

  3. @Alexandra (sorrowmcr) seriously!? That's so cool n__n and I'd of course love a postcard but don't feel obliged or anything! I was meaning to send you something too but I lost my stamps while moving but as soon as I find them again it'll be on its way. I do have a new address so I'll email you that just in case.
